Frequently Asked Questions

Do you offer courses in-person, online, or both?

We offer courses in-person at our downtown Indianapolis location, as well as online. Online students participate alongside on-campus classes via video conferencing.

*Due to the current health risks due to COVID-19, all of our programs are online until further notice.

What are the program hours?

Both the Software and UX Engineering cohorts are full-time programs running from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Eastern, Monday-Friday. Some Software Engineering cohorts run from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Pacific, Monday-Friday. We’ve started offering these times to better accommodate our students’ lifestyle needs and those who live on or near the West Coast.

How long is the program?

Our Software Engineering and User Experience (UX) Engineering programs are 12 months long. The Software Engineering program is broken down into two sections: Front-End Development (6 months) and Back-End Development (6 months).

The UX Engineering program is broken down into two sections: UX Design (6 months) and User Interface Engineering (UIE) (6 months).

Can I do this part-time?

Not at the moment. Kenzie Academy programs are rigorous, so students are required to attend full-time. Learning how to code is like learning a new language — full commitment and immersion are essential. Students with extensive life and work commitments outside of class would not be a fit for our full-time programs.

What do I receive for completing the Kenzie Academy program?

Software Engineering students will receive a joint Kenzie and Butler University certificate in Front-End Web Development after completing the first 6 months of the program. They’ll receive a joint Kenzie and Butler University certificate in Full-Stack Web Development after completing the second half of the program, which focuses on Back-End Web Development.

User Experience (UX) Engineering students will receive a joint Kenzie and Butler University certificate in User Experience Design for the first 6 months of the program. They’ll then receive a joint Kenzie and Butler University certificate in UX Engineering after completing the second half of the program, which focuses on UIE/Front-End Web Development.

As an extra option, Kenzie students also receive credit hours from Western Governors University (WGU), which they can put toward earning a degree from that university. Note: The WGU degree pathway is optional. Your certificates from Kenzie and Butler make you a marketable candidate to launch your career in tech.

Can I apply if I'm an international student?

Yes, you can absolutely apply for our online programs if you’re not located in the U.S., but please remember: our online programs are live and are not self-paced, meaning students must be online between the hours of 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. ET (or 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. PT for some Software Engineering classes).

International students can choose to pay tuition up front or via the standard monthly payment. Income Share Agreements (ISA) are not available to international students at this time.
